- Former President John Mahama has argued that only the NDC brings development to Ghana
- According to him, records show that Ghana experiences massive development only when the NDC is in power
Former President John Mahama has claimed that no political party has brought development to Ghana like the National Democratic Congress (NDC).
Speaking at Savelugu in the Northern Region, he added that Ghana experienced the fastest pace of development only when the NDC is in charge.
According to a report by MyNewsGH.com, he argued that the NDC as a party is development-oriented.
He went on to say it is therefore not surprising from the records from 1992 to date, that Ghanaians witness massive development each time NDC is steering the affairs of the nation.
He therefore appealed to Ghanaians to kick out the New Patriotic Party (NPP) in 2020, not because it has failed but the fact they have confidence NDC can do the job.
“If you look at NDC, NDC has always been the party that has brought development to Ghana. If you look at electricity extension, we have extended electricity to so many communities” he stated.
Highlighting a number of interventions to back his claim he said “we have provided water to many communities.

We built hospitals, we built CHPS compounds, we built roads. We were working on this road all the way to Tampion and then all the way to Karaga and Gushiegu. Since we left office thing road has come to a standstill.
We were working on the Eastern Corridor road since we left office, the road has come to a standstill. We developed this country, if you look at the history from Ghana from 1992, you realize the fastest progress the country experiences is when NDC is in power”
Mahama then called on branch executives to work assiduously towards the victory of the party in 2020 in order to allow the continuity of developmental projects started by the previous administration but abandoned by the current administration.
